    Yes in both cases, but only if you itemize, and only for the portion of the expense than exceeds 7.5% of your adjusted gross income.

    The dog I would not be sure as you need to ask a practicing accountant but I would suspect that may be a strong maybe, The hearing aid yes as this is a medical expense, I believe the dog would fall under this category as well, however there is a limitation on this deduction so again speak with a practicing professional. If you are paying that much in taxes it would be worth the consultation cost.

    From the IRS website:
    “The cost of items such as false teeth, prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, laser eye surgery, hearing aids, crutches, wheelchairs, and guide dogs for the blind or deaf are deductible medical expenses.”
    By extension, the cost of training should also be deductible.
